Well today I went to see a new ortho. dr. That pain management wanted me to go to. Had all records, transferred from prev. ortho. and all he had me do is walk to him, looked at the spine and touch the spine going down and when he got to the lumbar area, I said it hurt. He asked, "it hurts when I press there"? I said "yes"
He then goes and tells me that surgrey wouldn't help me but, cause me more pain. That he could do another mri to see where I stand now. Or just go back to pain management. I was floored. I was hoping that someone was going to help me out. I'm tired of taking pain killers all the time, going for mri's all the time or doing other test, and nothing happening. I want to be able not having pain when just trying to maintain my home.
So he wants to do a mri with contrast, which I havn't had done as of yet and wait and see again and take pain pills over and over again. Isn't there anything out there to help my stomach is really taking a toll?
Thanks for letting spill my guts of frustration out.
